About the Book

Has life become so grievous,
that you question God?

In Bought Lessons, Sylvia shares the Lessons she learned as she recuperated and persevered through insurmountable difficulties. She survived a near-death encounter that rendered her paralyzed for life at the age of 21. Finally, 49 years later, in retrospect, she exposes her humanity in efforts to share that although her life had its ups and downs, her abiding faith in God brought her through. Proverbs 24:16 describes her struggle. She laments that she got discouraged, she fell down many times, she wanted to give up, but instead, she purposed to trust God to help her get up and to try again. It worked! God cannot fail! She is not telling you what she heard or read in a book, she is telling you what she knows. These lessons will help you endure life’s many challenges.

About the Author

Sylvia was severely injured and rendered paralyzed on the left side at the age of 21 as a result of domestic violence. She defied all expectations and returned to work after a nine-month recuperation period. She worked 22 years as an educator in both public and private schools where she gained professional certification in two states. Declining health forced her to retire at the age of 45. At the point of retirement, she was an ordained minister, serving as pastor in a major protestant church denomination, while working toward chaplaincy credentials with the Department of Mental Health. She was also working toward a doctorate in pastoral counseling. More recently, she successfully fought her battle with cancer through a holistic approach using GOD’S PLAN when Chemotherapy was too cataclysmic.
